Blankets and cushions

Blankets and cushions can be used to great effect as personalised, and personal items. People will keek a personalised baby blanket or cushion, and even leave it to their progeny. Such an item could easily become a family heirloom. This aspect is easily ignored, but for a few hours work, or a small outlay, a God-parent or close family friend can give a present that will be treasured for generations. It is a small price to pay for such a lasting gift.

Crochet Tips for the Novice

Every novice at crochet, and sometimes, even those self-taught crocheters, who have been crocheting for a number of years, can benefit from crochet tips. After all, no-one knows everything. Sometimes, ‘expert’ crocheters have been doing it ‘their way’ for decades without realising that there is a better method.

There are a few common crocheting queries that pop up regularly in beginners’ classes though. One such query is how to add beads. It can seem second nature to practised hands, but there are still those who do not know how to do it. It is self-evident that different crocheters have their own ways of doing things, so replies to this query may differ too.

Two methods that spring to mind are: 1] to thread the beads onto the yarn itself so that they can be drawn up as and when they are needed; and 2] to slip the bead onto the crochet hook each time one is required. The novice will have to find out for him- or herself, which method works best.

However, even beading can be out of the league of complete beginners. Their problems can be very basic indeed. Such as how to start a new row, how to finish off and how to add another ball of yarn. Even more basic tips include the importance of keeping the equipment clean, germ-free and tidy. It is possible to self-inflict minor injuries, and it would be a shame if they turned sceptic. Skeins of yarn should be rolled into a ball to prevent it knotting and tangling. A self-taught novice crocheter could easily overlook these basic tips.
